KRL once told me that **** is swearing, don't do it.

So, from now on, I think that when I see the following things:

****

or **edited**

OR anything similar.

you are being given a strike. And, as per usual, three of them mean you go bye bye.

I really don't give a flying rats tail end anymore.

ANY posts after 4/30 that feature edited or filtered words are now strikable.

Stupid rule? Maybe. But I'm so very sick of childish arguments being supplimented by something like "you're a ******* idiot"

It's over with. There are several of you who won't make it more than a week unless you clean up.

The intent and attempt to swear is just as bad as swearing. Cry and wine and complain about it, but I've had enough of this crappy use of language.

That's pretty clear cut. Now, who is going to whine and try and bend it?

Looks like it. Amazing how that happens, isn't it?

Now if someone would crack down on the sigs and avatars. I''ve seen 200k Avatars and 700k sigs lately.

Im working on it. One step at a time.

I am not complaining just trying to clarify.

What happens if a member uses something to the effect of

!!!Edited!!!, :::Edited:::, <edited> Same idea. If I can tell what the intent is, its strike city for the offender.

Is it up to the descreation of the moderaters to use their jugdment in finguring out if <edited> was in reference to a swear word, or if the post was altered after it was posted? Again, yes. Theres usually no question as to how <edited> was meant to be used. Either swearing or fixing a post. One can usually tell just be looking at it.  

What about the censored smiley? Theres little I can do about that. Use it, I don't really care. But uses such as "ing idiot" wont be accepted.

I am not trying to cause a problem just trying to prevent future whine fests or at least have a more clarified guideline. Understandable, I appreciate the comments.

I apreciate the time and effort the moderators put forth on the behalf of the forum. Speaking for all, we thank you.

Obviously he will look at the context and dispense justice accordingly. He isn't stupid.

Good post Reb. A good way to determine if a word is acceptable or not is if you have to ask that question then you should probably not use it.  BTW Reb, What would old Stonewall Jackson do with all these cadets?

Its not that the Mods "HAVE" to force us into these strict rules, its that we could do with out any rules if we would act like civilized people.

Wow,, this forum never ceases to amaze me .

 A Moderator announces he is going to enforce the rules already in place , and a Stir develops because of it .

On a side note , if you cant insult somebody without using Curse words and such , you really ought to go back to school and pay attention in class . Intellectually , and emotionally , this forum has been inhabited by 14 year old imbecile reprobates for too long . Good work Reb . And good luck !!

I left this forum about 6 months ago , occasionally returning to lurk and post in a genuine legitimate post (If I can find them) . I'd ban some on their first strike R.C. , why prolong the agony of subjecting the forumers to continued stupidity ? IP ban would be a good thing , strikes just cause the offenders to create another screen-name .

What if someone tries to say the alternate word for homosexual?

It appears as **edited**.

Heres a message KRL15 sent me on 5/11/04 in reguards to a post I made in haste. I hope it helps clear up any problems. Remember think twice, post once.




Howdy!

Please, speak like a GENTLEMAN in public around here.

No variation of the "F" or "S" Words will be tolerated.

"WTF" ".... "Fugly" or "MoFo" are not allowed, either...


Best Regards,

Karl

KRL is my hero.  Reb, you need to enforce this more man.  People are not taking you seriously AT ALL.  You've laid down the law, but no one's following it.  Start handing out the strikes and then maybe they'll shut up.  Good luck with this Reb, because it is a hard task to handle pretty much by yourself (with help from enos is you talk to him about it).
